Chilly Tamarind

This is a mouth watering South Indian, to be more specific,  a dish enjoyed by Tamilians. Iam not sure whether this  dish is prepared  in any other state .
To prepare this dish we need :

  1. Tamarind-----size of a big lemon.
  2. Green chillies a handful. ( I have taken here 100 grams)
  3. Salt to taste.
  4. Jaggery a little
  5. oil--- one tea spoon.
Pour the oil in a frying pan and fry the green chillies . It would look like as shown in the picture.
Let it cool down. Then put these fried green chillies, tamarind, salt in a mixi jar  and grind it to a fine paste. Then add the jaggery and run the mixi for a few seconds. Need not add water.

Taste and if needed you can add more of any of the ingredients and grind it to a fine paste. This has got a long shelf life. If need be you can referigerate.

 A very good combination for curd rice and also for rice uppuma. Enjoy this recipe and ofcourse don't forget to give me a feed back.
